  • The UIA Scholarship Committee is responsible for evaluating each year’s scholarship applicants. This committee is comprised of UIA faculty, staff, administrators and community volunteers.
  • General scholarship applicants are evaluated and scored primarily on their application form and essay responses as well as a verbal video interview via Skype or WeChat . However, certain scholarships may have additional scoring criteria such as GPA, recommendation letters or other supporting documents.
  • Not all students are guaranteed a scholarship in this process, as we have many more applicants than available scholarships.

Mentor Financial Assistance Program

As a United States non-profit organization,
University of International Academics, Inc. mission is to help students in China that wish to further their education in America. We understand that international students pay a much higher rate for tuition than American students and our goal is to help offset these costs. Our donors help provide tuition assistance for Language Colleges, Community Colleges and Universities.

As we continue to build our US based donor platforms, financial assistance will be granted to students based on the criteria of the donor and funds available. If you would like to be included in our donor pool of students, please fill out the our submission form.
